Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 04 Honda Civic that gets hot when I'm on
the highway and it's making it where my AC is not
working would it be my water pump going out or is
my water pump out

If it's getting hot on the highway then check the air and coolant flow through the radiator also make sure the cooling fans are fully operational and not running backwards. Checking for a blown headgasket might be a wise thing to do too.

I can smell coolant when I'm driving


Not good, it could be coming out the over flow tube, the water pump could be leaking as it is running, the radiator could have a pin hole in it as well as the hoses. Do a cooling system pressure test first.
